A small chunk of Mars will be heading home when the US space agency launches its latest rover mission on Thursday.
Nasa’s Perseverance robot will carry with it a meteorite that originated on the Red Planet. Until now lodged in the collection of London’s Natural History Museum (NHM).
The slice of SaU 008 won’t be the only Martian meteorite on board. The rover’s SuperCam instrument will have its own piece of Mars rock, again to act as a calibration target.
Nasa’s Perseverance rover is scheduled to lift off during a two-hour window on Thursday that begins at 07:50 local time (11:50 GMT; 12:50 BST). It will be on a United Launch Alliance Atlas rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
